Cwm Farmhouse near PorthmadogRef: 2051
A beautifully prepared extended 16th century farmhouse of immense character surrounded by rolling countryside and with distant views of the sea and coastline at Cricieth. Built of stone it is quietly situated well away from the farm buildings near the fishing lake (see below) at Cwm Ystradllyn. The large inglenook fireplace in the lounge houses a woodburner stove for roaring log fires and the spacious farmhouse kitchen has the Rayburn range making the whole house cosy and warm. This cottage is near to one of the new UNESCO World Heritage sites for Wales Slate - Gorseddau and Prince of Wales Slate Quarries, Railways and Mill. There are plenty of walks straight from the Cottage including down to a fishing lake near by and an old Mill which has many great photo oportunities! Remote but not isolated, within Snowdonia National Park, and yet close to the coast with Cricieth, Porthmadog and Black Rock Sands a 15min drive away.

Fishing at the Lake: Located in the Snowdonia National Park and regarded as one of Wales' most picturesque lakes, Llyn Cwmystradllyn is truly the location for those who like to fish in wild places. H. M. Gallichan described Cwmystradllyn as a "lake charmingly situated in a green oasis among savage hills." The reservoir is fished by any method. However, because it is drinking water supply, there is a strict "no maggot fishing or ground baiting" rule. The worm can be very effective after heavy rainfall, especially by the small feeder streams. On the whole the water is gin-clear and this can be very productive for fly fishing. Flies that usually produce are: Hawthorn, Heather, Peter Ross, Dunkeld, Invicta, Haul a Gwynt, Mallard & Claret and Black Pennell. It pays to experiment and the angler who really perseveres will be the most successful.
The lake offers fishing for wild Brown Trout and quality, regularly stocked Rainbow Trout. The Rainbow Trout season extends from March 20th until October 31st, while the Brown Trout season runs from March 20th to September 30th. An Environment Agency Coarse and Trout Licence is required to fish this water and can be obtained online at the Environment Agency Website or from your Post Office.
Rules: No cleaning of fish to take place at the lakeside or anywhere in the area surrounding the lake. No fishing before 8.00 am and fishing must cease one hour after sunset. Fishing by fly, spinner and worm using single baited hook. Strictly no maggots or ground baiting. Float tackle must not be used with flies. Six fish limit. When the limit is reached, fishing must cease. The dam is for access only. No fishing from the dam. No swimming. No booby flies. No fish less than 8.5 inches or 21cm must be kept. All undersized fish must be returned unharmed. Spinners with only one treble hook can be used at the lake.
